Day #4: Hopscotch and Roast Beef

Emma and I enjoyed some time outside this morning. When she went to school I shopped for the "spring fling" party on Thursday (yes, I thought March 11th was Wednesday -
I'm really together!). By the way, I kinda cheated on my own challenge. I bought ketchup for $1.49 today and also stopped at Subway for a veggie delite 6-incher for $2.92. Is it cheating if I fessed up? Oh, well, I still haven't run to the dairy, so at this point I'm still under $100. I also ordered a few Easter outfits from the Gap, but that doesn't count, right?

This afternoon was perfect for a nice four-mile run and then it was time to finally wash my truck. It's amazing how a little thing can make such a big difference. That, and I scrubbed my kitchen floor and sanitized my bathroom with lots of bleach. I waited until I was sure we were free from our viruses, don't worry, I spot-cleaned after every occurence, this was a top-to-bottom cleaning). All in all, a pretty productive day (my standards are pretty low!).

Tonight's dinner: Roast beef with mashed potatoes (and not enough gravy) with steamed peas. We also had cornbread with butter and honey.


  1. Are you kidding? That sounds VERY productive to me!

  2. Well, thanks! It's just that I've discovered the one down-side of spring: with all the sunlight, it is very obvious (very) just how disgustingly dirty our house really is- here's hoping I'll somehow stay motivated to actually be moderately productive every day until I can get this place whipped into shape! (I'll keep you posted :)

  3. i'm with the above comment--anytime i clean with bleach it = a productive day, indeed (because i took that extra needed step to sanitize, haha). glad your family is feeling better!
